“A Battle We Must Win” For many years now, Double Kwik and the Pikeville Shriners team have partnered to collect toys for children receiving treatment at the Lexington Shriners Hospital. We are “Hillbilly Christmas in July”, our mission statement is simple; we are totally dedicated to our “young ‘uns” at the Shriners Hospital for Children-Lexington, KY. We raise as much money as possible each year to donate to the hospital so that free care for the patients can continue. We encourage everyone to make whatever contribution possible. Do it for the kids!

We will kick off the 2016 season in October.
Double Kwik and our community partners want to help many families in our service area ensure they have food during the Thanksgiving and holiday season. Each year we have set up areas for customers to donate nonperishable food items. The items along with any cash donations collected is provided to a local nonprofit organization to help identify and distribute food items to needy families.

Relay for Life – The 2016 Relay for Life walk was held on May 21st in Letcher County.
Each year, more than 4 million people in over 20 countries raise much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer through the Relay For Life movement. Our Double Kwik and Pine Mountain Grill team is proud to be part of the annual fight to raise money to fight cancer and raise awareness. For as long as the walk has happened, our team has actively participated in fundraising and the walk. Thanks to our wonderful community support and generous customers.
During a Relay event, participants and survivors celebrate what they’ve overcome.
We remember people lost to the disease, and honor people who have fought or are fighting cancer.
The event inspires Relay participants to take action against a disease that has taken too much.
